Southampton leads the UK in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Published: 14 June 2013

The University of Southampton has been ranked as number one in the UK for the fourth year in a row for Electrical and Electronic Engineering according to the Guardian University Guide.

The University is also ranked second overall by The Guardian for Mechanical Engineering and placed in the top five for Computer Science and IT in the same guide.

The University is number 1 in EEE

The news comes as the University received confirmation that it’s MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) has been fully approved by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency. The programme will commence this autumn at Southampton's Malaysia Campus at the EduCity campus in South Johor. The MQA approval follows the completion of a successful assessment exercise to ascertain that the teaching, learning and other related activities of the EEE programme have met the quality standards and in compliance with the Malaysian government.

“This is great news for our students and our staff, but also for prospective students who are currently holding offers to come to Southampton to study on our degree programmes later this year,” said Professor Neil White, Head of Electronics and Computer Science at the University. “Internationally, our students from outside the UK have confirmation that they will be studying in one of the best places in the world.

“Our students can be sure that they will benefit from the highest-quality teaching and facilities, and that when they graduate they will be in demand by the leading high-tech companies in the world,” he added.

EEE commences this autumn at USMC

The Guardian tables are based on data from the UK’s National Student Survey and Higher Education Statistics Agency, covering teaching quality and feedback, spending per student, staff/student ratios, job prospects, a “value added” criteria (comparing students’ degree results with entry qualifications), and entry scores.

The Guardian has traditionally put a strong emphasis on student-centred issues in the construction of their league table, which continues to be an important factor in student choice, particularly in the international market.

The degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering joins Southampton’s undergraduate MEng in Mechanical Engineering, which enrolled its first students in 2012. The University is proud to offer these two flagship programmes through its Malaysia Campus.
